Wayne LaPierre is an Executive VP of the NRA and an outspoken advocate for the right to keep and bear arms. He has been in the news numerous times since the shooting in Connecticut, standing firm in the face of the Progressive media’s attacks on guns.
On a recent episode of Meet The Press, LaPierre said,
“Let me hold up a mirror right now to the whole national news media and the White House. Do you know where Chicago ranks in terms of enforcement of the federal gun laws? Out of 90 jurisdictions in the country, they ranked 90th. Why doesn’t NBC News start with: ‘Shocking news on Chicago. Of all the jurisdictions in the country, Chicago’s dead last on enforcement of the federal gun laws’?”
Politico reporter Lois Romano called LaPierre “a tired old white guy that is clinging on to something of the past.”
These people aren’t stupid. They know that Chicago has one of the most stringent set of gun laws in the nation AND one of the highest rates of gun violence in the country. They just don’t care.
It’s not about facts for them; it’s about ideology. They paraded the Newtown victims to support their efforts to disarm law-abiding Americans. That didn’t work, so now they’re turning on the insults.
Thomas Sowell said:
“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”
